The district posted a new video to provide an overview of the school bond details that are on the ballot.

An animated “walkthrough” of the proposed schools was released by WFISD in September. The two schools will have identical floor plans with personalized colors, materials and finishes throughout each campus.

The video shows how many of the areas of the proposed campuses will look should the bond be passed.

WFISD also released an info-graphic that has important information for voters over the age of 65, tax rate information and what exactly is being proposed for the high schools.

Under the new propositions, Rider, Hirschi and Wichita Falls High School will all be retired and two new schools and recreational facilities will be constructed for use.

The new schools will be scheduled to open in Fall of 2024 if the propositions pass.

The estimated maximum tax increase if the bond is approved is estimated to be 32 cents. The total tax rate would be up to $1.47 per $100 of assessed value.
